Punahou Variety Show: ‘24,000 Leagues Under the Sea’

The Punahou Variety Show, a cherished tradition at the Carnival, highlighted the remarkable talents of the senior class in singing, dancing and acting. For their performance, the Class of 2024 took audiences on a captivating journey with “24,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

Seniors were involved in every aspect of the production, from performance to the creative processes behind the scenes such as writing, graphic design, costume and set construction, choreography and stage management, making the show a “splash” success.

The hour-long show took place on campus at Dillingham Hall Friday, Feb. 2 and Saturday, Feb. 3, with a matinee at 1 p.m. and an evening show at 5 p.m. on both days. The show is also available to rent and watch after Carnival, through Feb. 18.

Hosted by “James Coral,” the show took audiences on an undersea adventure when the main movie sea-“stars” of “24,000 Leagues Under the Sea” don’t show up to the film’s premiere. The seniors rallied the sharpest minds of the Great Barrier Reef to explore the depths of the ocean and recover the elusive “star”-fish.
